Chipotle Flakes are granulated, dried and smoked chipotle (Morita) chile peppers. When fully ripened Morita chiles have a deep reddish brown color and are about 2-4 inches in length and 1 inch width. Primarily used in southwest dishes these peppers make a great addition to meat, fish and vegetables. Sprinkle some on mashed potatoes for adding a wonderful smoky flavor. They are medium hot and range on the overall heat scale of 5-6.5 out of 10.
These pocket size tubes have a custom re-closable cap that lets you add just the right amount. They are great for carrying in your pocket or purse when you go out to your favorite restaurant. They also make great little gifts for friends who like to spice up their dish.
These tubes contain a smaller grain flake than our larger bottles. One tube will usually season 1-2 large pizzas depending on taste.
